My wedding was in June of 2016 and if I could choose a venue again, I would still choose the Orchard!!!

The barn was decorated so beautifully when we arrived it almost didn't need any additional decorations.

In addition, the grounds of this venue allow for stunning photos (especially the swing over by the pond).

The reception went smoothly and Kristin was there to answer any questions. One of the best things the Orchard

did was when they started serving salads to the adults, ...they also brought out meals for the kiddos this kept the

children in their seats and it made the parents very happy). They served the food very efficiently and

were so incredibly kind to also pour our wine for toasts & serve our cupcakes to each table. We weren't

rushed to de-decorate which was also a huge relief. I keep getting compliments from guests about

how much they loved our wedding - specifically the venue and food!!

I just wanted to reach out as you were on my mind!  We celebrated our

year anniversary yesterday and were talking about how amazing your venue

and staff are as we were remembering the day.  So, I wanted to reach out and

say again a year later, thank you so much for making our day so memorable,

special and a dream come true.  I recommend The Orchard to anyone looking for a venue. 

This place will be a special part of our lives forever.

Dear Mary...

We want to say "THANK YOU" to you and your staff. Jeremy and I had a wonderful experience 

and our wedding day was perfect.  Jeremy and I decided on The Orchard because we had our

first date there four years ago.  It holds a very special place in our hearts.  Many of our guests

told us it was beautiful venue and they loved the food. We couldn't agree more. 

Thank You again for our perfect wedding day. 

Jeremy and I both feel, you Mary, helped to make our day so special and wonderful.

Sincerely, Mandy & Jeremy Rosenberg

With the months of planning and prep behind us, I just wanted to extend a personal thank you

A heartfelt thank you to you and your staff for the wondering wedding reception

for Eric and Susie last Saturday.  The backdrop and black and white table linens were most elegant.

The service, promptness of serving the dinner and the presentation of food was excellent. 

Chicken Marsala was wonderful. Thank you to The Orchard.  We loved it!

P.S.  Thanks for being so accommodating with everything

(setting up 2 days before, dessert buffet and serving truffles, etc).


Orchard Staff,

I wanted to write and thank you for the excellent service and help during our wedding reception! 

Many of our guests are still singing your praises.  They were very impressed with the food and

the awesome customer service!  I want to personally thank Mary for all her help and accommodations. 

We had some special food requests (ie. ice cream cake and nacho bar) everyone worked with us

to create an affordable and memorable experience.  I was most impressed when it came to the end

of the night and the staff jumped right in to help with clean up.  This allowed me to relax, be at ease,

and enjoy the rest of the wedding!

Thanks Again,

Laura and Dave Feyma


Mary, Sherri, and Staff

Kim and I want to thank all of you for your help at our recent wedding reception we had at

The Orchard for Kyle and Tamara.  Sherri and the staff were so helpful with setting up the tablescapes. 

They kept everything running smoothly throughout the day.  :)  Handling the cake, queing up

the DVD's, etc.  Over the last week or so many of our guests have commented on what a nice venue

The Orchard is and also that the food was exceptional  (thanks to the Chef).  We will certainly refer

folks to The Orchard.  Mary thank you for keeping us within our budget and

for making this a very memorable day for our family and friends.
